Literally translates to “mixed rice.” But, it doesn’t even begin to describe this Korean staple. The key component of bibimbap is gochujang—a deep red, spicy and immensely flavorful sauce made from Korean chilis and fermented miso. Beyond warming your bones on a cold evening, chilis have proven cardiovascular and immunity benefits. Medium-grain rice, carrots, spinach, and zucchini provide the energy needed to go further and stay out longer in the backcountry. Fry an egg and slide it on top, and you’ll swear you’re in your favorite Korean restaurant.
